NCAA's Best College Fan Base: Wisconsin or Penn State?

Despite having larger venues in college football, fans have no trouble filling the seats and making their environment as inhospitable as possible. We at the Tylt love college sports fans, and their rapid support of their teams. And that's why we want to know who is the loudest and proudest 12th man in the NCAA. Will your team win?

Green Bay Packers fans are a pretty devoted bunch, but their neighbors in Madison make their fandom look downright casual. Watching the student section go wild to House of Pain's "Jump Around" is a surreal experience that's a mix of amazement and fear. Camp Randall is up to code, but the fans jump up with such force, there is a little doubt the stadium can handle it.
Camp Randall is situated in the middle of downtown Madison, so there aren't traditional spots for tailgating. Still, the city is very accommodating to fans with bars hosting many Badger supporters during game day. There's a reason Madison was called "30 square miles surrounded by reality." A lot of it has to do with the Wisconsin fans on Saturdays.
You can call Penn State whatever you want, but don't call them disloyal. Anyone can be a fan during a national championship season, but it takes a real fan to stick with your team after one of the most disgusting scandals of recent memory. Despite the country wagging their collective figures at Penn State, fans just rallied around each other and protected the team.
Every Saturday, over 100,000 fans pack an actual field made for tailgating before heading into Beaver Stadium. Being a part of Penn State is like being a part of a family of millions.
